Wendy & Mark's Wedding Cupcakes

This Sunday we did the cakes for Wendy and Mark's wedding, and what a lovely day is was! They had a moroccan themed wedding, in a marquee on a farm, with lots of lanterns, drapes and lushious fabrics. The tables were scattered with cinnamon sticks, chillis, dried oranges and peacock feathers, this is where we took our inspirtaion for the cakes from. We used gold cupcake cases as there was lots of gold in the wedding, with gold balls in different sizes and gold flowers, then we had some of the cupcakes in a teal coloured icing in keeping with the peacock feathers and even topped some with sugar paste chillies! And then we had some with fudge on top, the colour was right, but I think it was more because Wendy loved the fudge, she dived straight for that one when e had our sample meeting. The display was then finished off with some fresh cream roses and scattered rose petals. Anyway Wendy and Mark were a lovely couple to work with and I wish them all the best, I think they are currently sunning themselves in Belize on Honeymoon, lucky them!!

Rhea's dairy free party

This week we celebrated Rhea's 8th Birthday at bake-a-boo. Because Rhea is Lactose intolerant, her mum Tracy knew that we would be able to offer her some treats that were safe for her to eat, so we made her a dairy free birthday cake, some dairy free sandwiches, and other treats. Rhea and her friends enjoyed their tea and then had fun doing a braclet making worskhop with Michelle. Happy Birthday Rhea!

Bon Voyage Emma

Here's some mini cupcakes we did for Emma's surprise cocktail party at the soho arts club. A get together for all her friends to say Au revoir to her as she was moving to Paris. Good Luck Emma x

Happy birthday Tori Star

On Good Friday, some of us had a great Friday at bake-a-boo as we celebrated Tori Star's 3rd birthday party at bake-a-boo. The gorgeous Tori Star celebrated with her friends on their own table of treats where they ate cakes, sandwiches and other goodies with a princess theme, lots of pink, magical sparkle, fairies and glitter, with of course wands and crowns. The adults had their own table with a 'proper' afternoon tea of sandwiches, scones and other treats, with tea flowing, of course! And we decorated the place with lots of stars, because that's Tori's name! Hanging stars from the chandeliers, star balloons, star shaped biscuits and sandwiches, and star confetti. Loving the stars!! After lots of eating and a cupcake decorating workshop for the kids, Tori blew out the candles and sparklers on her giant cupcake birthday cake, then all the littleuns went home with a party box each - princess themed boxes for the girlies and pirate themed boxes for the boys. I think this was my favourite party at bake-a-boo so far....can you tell? Happy birthday Tori's a slideshow x

Bye Bye Easter

Loving the sunshine today, and feeling a bit more refreshed from a lovely Easter. although I didn't enjoy taking down all the Easter dceorations today, it's way too long before we have another 'occassion' to look forward to. Anyway, I had a lovely Easter day off from all Boo activity and spent a great afternoon with my sister and nephews, eating easter eggs, lemon Easter cake a-la bake-a-boo, whilst playing board games and watching Charlie and the chocolate factory! Good times. I also made a yummy roast dinner and am extremely proud to have made wheat and dairy free yorkshire puddings!! It's been years, they used to be one of my favourites, and they just tasted so good! Anyway back in action now and gearing up for another busy weekend at the Boo. We'll be happy to see all our familar faces back from their holidays next week. the school kids and the ballet faces, and hopefully lots more sunshine!

Monday, 6 April 2009

It's the first day of the Easter Holidays, my favourite time of the year!! Come to bake-a-boo for Easter treats this week. Our cupcakes and cakes get an Easter re-vamp, you can pick up treats for your egg hunts, or even some alternative eastery bits and pieces that are not chocolate, if you and the kids have already over indulged! or you could just relax with a cup of tea and a yummy toasted hot cross bun.
We've had baby shower mayhem this weekend and this week we celebrate birthdays in store for Lillie (today) and Tori Star on Friday, so we'll be looking forward to a rest on the bank holiday Monday, when we will be closed (we will be open normal hours on all other days including good Friday and Easter Sunday, for those who have been asking)
This week we also had a bake-a-boo day out (or night out) when we went to see our very own Leon (our scone master as he likes to be called) in his West End play - Plague over England, (as well as being in 'Team Boo', he is also an actor)
And last but not least, for the sake of having a picture, (although not a great one!) Here's a picture (pre candles) of our new giant cupcake cake, thank you to Mike for making us get this genius cake tin, we've been having lots of fun with it, we look forward to making your giant cupcake for Maddison's 1st birthday this weekend.
